Novi Sad Theatre

Újvidéki Színház, i.e., the Novi Sad Theatre, was founded in 1974 with the idea of preserving the cultural identity of Hungarians in Vojvodina. Jovan Subotić Street very quickly became a place where some great important theatre stories emerged. Over time, the Novi Sad Theatre became not only a place where the Hungarian elite gathered but also one of the most relevant theatre addresses in Serbia and the region.

During the difficult nineties, the theatre stood out with unusual theatrical poetics that hinted at some new theatrical outlines. The best directors were coming to the Novi Sad Theatre, and the theatre itself was part of the biggest theatre festivals in the region – Sterijino pozorje, Bitef, but also those in Szeged, Pécs, Timişoara, Umag, Maribor, Koper, Ohrid, Skoplje, Podgorica and Sarajevo, from which it usually came back awarded. The Synergy festival, the festival of linguistic minorities of the world, was also launched here.

All plays performed in Hungarian always have a simultaneous translation into Serbian.

Classical music virtuosos Shihan Wang and Ke Ma amazed the world, and now they are coming to Doček on 13 January and preparing an exclusive performance at the Novi Sad Theatre. What does the combination of a former child prodigy who now wins first prizes all over Europe and a PhD candidate of the London Royal Academy sound like – we will find out at a performance that will be remembered for a long time.
